Shooting guard Devin Booker excited to get Kentucky offer

Devin Booker

Two days after offering a scholarship to the University of Kentucky, Coach was perched on the bleachers for the junior guard’s first game of the weekend.

Toward the end of the first half, Booker flew out of bounds chasing down a loose ball, landed face first on the synthetic track circling the court and slid into a group of college coaches.

Calipari scooted forward in his seat to make sure his newest recruit was OK. Before the coach had finished the “Whoaaa” that came out of his mouth when Booker hit the ground, the player was back on his feet and hustling down the court to play defense.

That’s why Calipari wants him to be a Wildcat.
